Saint Andrew School students in Drexel Hill raised $1,000 and pitched in to build 123 bikes for children in the community, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.

The students were helping the Pine Street Carpenters’ 12th Annual 100 Wheels Project.

This year’s bike build event, the largest to date, took place Dec. 5 at Pine Street’s West Chester workshop and kitchen showroom.

Since Pine Street launched the project in 2008, the company has provided 962 bikes to families in need.

Ten St. Andrew students volunteered, to build bikes, along with the fundraising efforts.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the support of the Saint Andrew School community,” said Brendon Dolan, owner of Pine Street Carpenters and a Saint Andrew School alum. “Their support – and their spirit of service – is truly inspiring.”

Project partners this year included the Friends Association for the Care and Protection of Children, Family Service of Chester County, The Care Center, Saint Agnes Day Room, and The Salvation Army, all of West Chester; Home of the Sparrow in Exton, Carter Community Development Corporation in Kennett Square, People’s Pantry at Church Road in Malvern, and Family Services of Montgomery County in Norristown.
